The night curfew in Punjab has been extended for another two hours in nine districts. So far, the curfew has been in place from 11 pm to 5 am, but now it will start at 9 pm, CM Captain Amarinder Singh said. He said more than 100 cases of corona virus were reported daily in these districts. He said night curfew was extended for another two hours in Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Patiala, Mohali, Amritsar, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Kapurthala and Ropar districts. More than 2,000 new corona virus cases were reported in Punjab on Wednesday alone, killing 35 corona patients. Earlier on Tuesday, the number of active cases rose to 13,320 from 12,616, the state health ministry said. Amarinder Singh said if the number of corona virus cases in the state does not decrease, more stringent measures will be taken in the coming days and sanctions will be imposed. He commented that the corona virus situation here is much worse.
He urged all Punjabis to co-operate with their government in controlling the corona virus. He urged them to consult a doctor immediately if they have any mild symptoms. Asked about his reaction to the state CM’s remarks that there was a plan to impose sanctions on pilgrims coming from Punjab to Himachal Pradesh, he said, “We will not impose any restrictions on pilgrims from that state. If the people of our state are vigilant, it will be enough.” “However, our government is taking all possible steps to control Kovid. We hope all the people will co-operate in this,” Amarinder Singh said.
